I thought I was going to read an interesting story of a young lads' trials of growing up in a strange land, instead it's about a "pervert" playing with his self!!! NOT my idea of relaxing reading. This book should have came with a warning on the cover. Every time you turn around his hashis member in his hand!!! DISGUSTING!!!! I THINK THE AUTHOR IS A WEIRDO!!!!! UNLESS YOU LIKE TO READ ABOUT SOME FREAK JUMPING RANDOMLY INTO THE WOODS TO ADMIRE HID DRIPPING MEMBER (WHICH I DON"T!) DO NOT READ! AND THEN HE ADOPTS A CHILD??? I GUESS IT DON"T TAKE MUCH INSITE TO FIGURE THIS ONE OUT!!!

Enjoyed the descriptions of the narrator and his life in Africa but story did not take hold of my soul.

Quite different from anything else of Henkell's that I have read. Interesting scenario of "scientist" kidnapping a Hottentot and taking him to Europe fr various mixed motives.
